but you “drifted” straight into a curb and broke your mismatch painted bodykit, break our the zip ties, it’s time for drift stitches
but then you grew up, bought a house, you’re raising a family, and you drift your basement door into the door frame too strongly...
you shoulda seen the look on my wife’s face...
the crack (which actually occurred some 4-ish years ago and has been covered with children’s art since) actually offset the two pieced of door about half an inch, so it was a large difference that needed to be brought back together.
The three hole drilled on the edge were so I could level the piece back into place while I tightened the zip ties down to keep it there
glue glue glue, and cut the zips flush
more glue, then scraped it flat with a razor
huzah! it held after the zip ties were removed
glob on the wood filler
time to talk costs. a replacement door was $45+tax. Filler was my only expense (as a POS car owner I of course have a massive supply of zip ties on hand) at $4.50 for some very sticky plastic-wood filler.
first layer of filling smoothed, and a few extra globs applied
smooth and shape.
now just to repaint all three doors on this floor as they’ve all got an infinite supply of dirty hand prints and boot scuffs, the general wear and tear of being the main portals in/out of my house
hmm, yikes, some cursory fb picture hunting indicates the door has been art covered to hide the large crack for 6 years? at least?
only last year, because our pup is only 2 years old
but when I was doing the floors the walls were still green, yikes, it’s been some time.
